Lots to Share!

Happy Friday Everyone! Happy Halloween too! I have a few things to share with you today. First off is my card for this week's Bloggers Challenge. Yes, you guessed it...the challenge was to make a Halloween card! I used one of my favorite images from Stampendous. It's paired up with some Tangerine Tango and Lovely Lilac card stock from Stampin' Up. The patterned paper was in my stash and I've apparently cut off the maker (oops!). This May Arts ribbon matched all of the colors beautifully (Love it when that happens!) I really thought that the photo corner on the bottom left needed something. I don't have any Tangerine Tango brads, so I improvised and made a few circles with my hole punch and a scrap of Tangerine Tango. It worked perfectly! I really think that it helped pull this card together.

The other two things that I have to share are (quite sadly) my last two creations as a Design Team member of Storage Units, Ink & More. (By the way, they have a new release coming out tomorrow...Be sure to check it out!) My new job is definitely getting in the way of my stamping time...lol! I really want to thank Denise for the wonderful opportunity, and I am so proud to say that I was part of a team with a truly amazing group of ladies! My little place card box will be perfect for this year's Thanksgiving celebration. I can fill it with little goodies and everyone will know just where to sit! The base is Core'dinations card stock with a touch of Tangerine Tango card stock and ribbon. The sweet Indian Maiden is from the Giving Thanks set and I pierced around the image for a little bit of extra interest. I received this template from my friend Lauren. As soon as I can get some directions up for you, I will.
Finally, this card also uses the Giving Thanks set with Core'dinations card stock. As you can see, I had quite a bit of fun with my paper piercer on this one...lol! Stampin' Up's Scallop Circle Punch and a few buttons from Doodlebug Designs complete my card. Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful weekend...Toodles!!! :D
